    Just came to my mind, but does this by any chance include a live-replay-function to review the incident more closely by the stewards on the fly, if they even saw it first hand and did not just see the car damage on the streaming hud or something.

    Just as it was with the WTCC >> WTCR. We need a real RWD GT cars championship. ;)

    DTM is officially touring cars, though :p
    Sadly not, as we have yet to figure out how to perform this magic, we'd need to run the simulation twice simultaneously, all of a sudden. Once for the replay, and once to keep track of all the stuff happening in the race while you're watching an instant replay. Not a small task.
    Actually, if you can give me a custom RCS for a DD1 wheel and some information about its minimum and maximum range, I could give you a file to try.

    Of course, but these cars are left behind many of the GT class, which is why this championship is so interesting, unlike WTCR. We dream of WEC, IMSA, Super GT.

    Matter of opinion mate. We all have our personal preferences. :)

    No DTM this year? Not very smart Mr Berger. They missed again the chance to advertise DTM.

    I also like to sometimes drive on these lighters, but in my opinion it’s not quite right to make this a priority.

    I see, I was kind of thinking of the way GRID and Dirt and F1 are doing this with their instant replay buttons, so that the Stewarts kind of could rewind the last, say 30 seconds, and then go on with the live footage. I was hoping that it is "only" a bit of work concerning the saving of the position data of the cars on track.

    Thanks for giving the insight! =)

    Any timeframe for the updated physics for DTM92 and Touring Classics @J-F Chardon ?

    Hopefully not anytime soon. I can actually drive these without the "Crew Chief" telling me how rubbish my driving is unlike the other classes.:Do_O:Do_O

    It is working if you keep Spring and Damper settings enabled (100% by default) in your Thrustmaster Control Panel.
    In-game just set those effects to 0% (they are 0% with default profile for T300) and it should work. I discovered this not so long ago.

    Just in case you weren't aware of this, RR does also have an instant replay function (default hotkey R, iirc), but it only works in single player mode because the game gets paused if you activate it, which cannot be done in multiplayer. So as J-F pointed out, in mp the game would have to continue gathering the replay data whilst simultaneously accessing it. I'm sure it could be done somehow, but it would probably take a huge amount of work and some new techniques to achieve that.

    I suppose the Thrustmaster driver is doing some friction on its own somehow?
    Do you feel any difference when changing the value for FFB stationary friction="0.7" ?

    Could it be a standard effect created by the Thrustmaster driver?

    I discovered the game needed those settings enabled in the Thrustmaster driver for the stationary friction to work. But the effect to me is generated by the game, not the thrustmaster driver.
    If it was the driver, the effect would be permanent I guess. But in this case it's only applying when stopped or moving very slowly (there is a value for this in the .rcs if I recall correctly).

    And yes there is a difference when changing "FFB stationary friction" in the .rcs. I changed mine to 0.9 while testing this and the effect felt harder when I changed. I've kept it at 0.9 since.
    Logically if I set this to 0 in the .rcs then the effect should be gone. I will test this and report.

    This made my day. This is THE addition to the game in my opinion. Everytime when I visited this forum I hoped for more infos about these cars since they were announced last winter. Hopefully the wait won't be too long. :)

    Maybe only for the trailer. Here he's using a Bodnar SimSteering V2. :D

    Very much interested in the pneumatic trail ffb changes I've always had a weird sensation with rr self aligning forces the way it sort of sways a bit around centre, unlike a real rack. I hope this rectifies it

    Will there be any more friends for Group 4? I would love to have a larger class.
